[hsflinux] Fedora 7 Volume control...

Thanks for your reply. I'm really not sure where to go with this. I
a little research yesterday and I'm thinking that the ALSA stuff that

installed with Fedora 7 is probably the same as what is coming with
HSF Driver.  7 came with the alsa 1.0.14-0.4 rc3 which are a few
old.  I just figured we were dealing with different ALSA, but now I'm

starting to wonder if something else is going on.

I then searched looking for information on speakers and headphones 
playing simultaneously. Apparently, this is a pretty common problem
the laptop/linux world. However, the fixes , usually a line or two in

modprobe.conf, were varied and nothing I did worked.  It seems as
it will vary with the laptop manufacturer. I have to say that I don't

know very much about what these lines in modprobe do,  so my tries
just what I saw on the boards. I guess I'll need to find out more
theses and hopefully work up the right combination.

I'll keep looking around, but if you or anyone else has an ideas for 
this I'd be most appreciative.
